2 Canadian Teens Rescued From Forest*

Two men who got lost¹ in the woods² in Ontario, Canada, have been rescued after placing a distressed call to 911³. A K-9 unit found them, and they were checked out at a local hospital and released, reports the National Post and Global News. Some footnotes:

  1. They didn't so much get lost as get stoned. Police say it was clear they were on something, but the 19-year-olds wouldn't reveal what it was. When found, police say they were "silently staring off into the sky."
  2. It wasn't so much "woods" as a local park, next to a high school and a busy road. One cop says it's "near impossible" to get lost there. It was also 6pm, and thus still daylight. The K-9 unit found them within 15 minutes.
  3. When asked for landmarks, the caller mentioned trees. When asked to shout for help to alert searchers, he just said "yeah," quietly. No charges were being filed.
